Rancho Santa Fe

Rancho Santa Fe has a rich history and was established in 1928 as a country residential community with an emphasis on agriculture and on preserving the rural landscapes.

While the area is commonly referred to as the Covenant, the term refers to an agreement among property owners to preserve and maintain the character of the community and its landscape, and to uphold the quality of future architecture. The agreement came to be known simply as the Covenant and now refers not only to the principal governing document, but also to the community itself.

Today, the Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe encompasses roughly 10 square miles or 6,730 acres and is home to around 4,300 residents. Near the center of the Covenant is the Village of Rancho Santa Fe, with shops, restaurants, other commercial businesses and the historic Rancho Santa Fe Inn.

The Rancho Santa Fe School District campus is located adjacent to the Village. The Roger Rowe School, for elementary and middle school aged students, features a state-of-the-art campus, a performing arts center, classroom labs and more.

The acclaimed and exclusive Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club is located in the heart of the Covenant. The Max Behr-designed 6,700-yard par-72 private course is open to Covenant members and their guests. Opening in 1929, the golf club served as the original site for 1930s-era clambakes hosted by Bing Crosby, an early resident of the Covenant.

Most of the Covenant is beautiful rolling topography with spacious low-density, large-lot residential development where the average lot size is more than two acres. Looping through the pristine countryside and alongside the golf course, a private equestrian and hiking trail network runs throughout the community. The exclusive, secure, rural character of the community, combined with its proximity to the ocean are what set the Covenant apart as being a highly desirable place to live.Preserving and maintaining the character of the community are of utmost importance, as is the privacy, safety and security of its residents. The Covenant has a full-time private security patrol, and is served by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department and the California Highway Patrol.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It.

Ican honestly say: Chris sets the standard for RE agents. He’s highly knowledgeable, patient, respectful and responsible, always quick to respond to calls and emails. Though young in years, he’s a “classic professional” in every way. I’ve dealt with many good RE agents in my life, but when it comes to “the total package,” Chris takes the prize. He truly is the RE agent who goes the extra mile. If you buy or sell a house through Chris, I guarantee that you too will welcome the opportunity to give him a glowing review and to highly recommend him to others”

-Susan S
Our family trust hired Chris to help us to sell my deceased mother’s property. Chris inspired confidence from the start and was exceptionally responsive to all communications. He listed our property at an aggressive price and helped us to acquire a selling price over 20K above the asking price with great negotiation skills and close communication with our family. We were greatly pleased with the service and excellent work ethic Chris displayed. We would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell property”

-Charles C
Chris is the best real estate agent I know! He is personable, hardworking, organized and responsive and clearly knows the business. He helped me to sell my home quickly and for our asking price. He not only handled the complexities related to that sale, but when I had unexpected surgery and could not do some of the repairs needed to close the escrow, he rolled up his sleeves and helped with some of the repairs!! He also helped me to find a wonderful place to buy in Carlsbad, CA. His depth of knowledge will be saving me a ton in property taxes, as he made me aware of a CA proposition passed that will allow me to carry over the property tax basis of my old property to my new home!”
